A successful R&B/hip hop collaboration comes along very rarely, one such as I’ll Be There For You/You’re All I Need To Get By by Method Man & Mary J. Blige. But come along it has. My friend and client, Lance, has teamed up with Mista Freezy to produce what is sure to be a classic. Lance and Mista Freezy are calling their collaborative efforts “Joker’s Wild,” an the resulting song, Long Hair has already created significant buzz on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
UPDATE: The song is quickly becoming viral! It hit the charts on “Tweet my Song” at 355 on July 27, then shot up to #44! The song is available on iTunes and will soon be available directly from Lance’s website, Lancesongs.com.
Lance is a singer/songwriter and one of kind in today’s music industry. Lance is not afraid to be true to himself and his craft. Many first recognize him by the hat on his head or the distinctive way he dresses. Most, however, remember the lyrics he sings and the way his adoring fans sing along. Each song he writes and performs seems ripped directly from his “heart and soul” and delivered with passion and emotion. Soon you’ll be singing along too! With the release of his album What you Make It on April 20, 2011, the world caught yet another glimpse of Lance’s soulful talent as he took it to the streets with a 64-date tour and television and radio campaign.

He also attended SXSW,and did features in Spin Magazine and FADER FORT. In 2010, Brandon founded Money Hungry Mogul Musik Group, and made the transition from artist/producer to Owner/CEO, to further his interests on a global scale in the music industry and engage in the executive facet of the music business. Currently in 2011, Freezy is anticipating his 2nd album release, "Summertime Music" in June .
